PaperCut NG & PaperCut MF Manual


Install the User Client with Microsoft Intune

Used by both PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF, administrators can deploy their user client by leveraging Microsoft’s Intune Endpoint Device Manager.

Create your .intunewin file

  1. Create a working area by creating three folders:

    • Intune
    • Source
    • Output
  2. Go to Microsoft’s Github page and download the zip for their Prep Tool Microsoft/Microsoft-Win32-Content-Prep-Tool. This tool wraps Win32 App so it can be uploaded to Intune (GitHub: Where the world builds software).

  3. Unzip it and place the executable into the Intune folder you created.

  4. Copy the contents of your PaperCut Application Server’s Win folder to the Source folder you created.

    • [Default PaperCut MF Path] - C:\Program Files\PaperCut MF\client\win
    • [Default PaperCut NG Path] - C:\Program Files\PaperCut NG\client\win
  5. Open PowerShell.exe, change the directory to the root of the working path, and run this command:

     .\Intune\IntuneWinAppUtil.exe -c .\Source -s “.\pc-client-admin-deploy.msi” -o .\Output\ -q
  6. Once the tool finishes, take your new pc-client-admin-deploy.intunewin file from your Output folder and proceed to Step 2. Install user component.
